Was thinking of popping in and grabbing one of those table saws.

Never bought a Lidl toy before, anyone had any experience of them?

I have a few they are usually parkside brand (a lot are badged einhell) with 3 yr warranty you must keep the till receipt
In general they are ok as a basic tool for the home user which offer good value an enthusiast/tradesman would probably spend more on branded tools
I have the belt sander its big and heavy duty and a drill which has been ok

A video of table saw being assembled here in french but it has some subtitles

The long nosed pliers are like proper radio or jeweller's pliers. No cutter and smooth jaws.
Not bad for £2.49
I did have to pick through them to find a pair where the jaws actually met though. They weren't too bad but some were better than others.
